14" Egg Basket
Cherry Round Nantucket with Lid
"LET ART SHINE"
Jim and Jimmie Kent are master basket makers and workshop leaders working from their home/studio. Our knowledge of basketry skills and Jimís use of wood working techniques allow us to produce a unique interaction of materials and textured that is pleasing to the eye. Both of us have been weaving baskets for many years and are members of several basket guilds across the United States. Miss Jimmie served as president of the North Carolina Basket Association for 5 years.
We have shared our knowledge of weaving with many people in all walks of life both children and adults... Our work has been shown through PBS as a feature story in North Carolina Treasures. Our work is marketed under the name of MISS JIMMIEíS BASKETRY and all the work is done with pride by the Kent Family.
